Abstract: The article discusses management consulting and the correlation between the rise of consulting services and the demand for such services. The article discusses management fashion, a management concept which has become fashionable, and how a concept may be in higher demand because it is getting more publicity within the business community. The article describes the four major paradigms of general theories of management fashion: trickle-down, collective selection, marionette, and ambivalence. The article also discusses business consultants and the rhetoric of management fashion.
